It’s nice to hear a garage band doing something different. The Bosch have a full, shuffling sound with a keyboard player who also plays sax and clarinet. The horns give them a 50s rock influence, especially on a couple of hand-clapping numbers and the ballady “Teenage Symphony.” Along with rockabilly drumming, skanky upbeat horn lines, and good Lou Reed-ish rock vox, they’re raucous in a Who meets the White Light/White Heat era Velvets way, but executed with good, clean fun.
Our own bass and harmonica wielding fiend Brett Beyer put together the first ever Bosch Podcast (or as we call it ’round here, the BoschCast.) This first BoschCast is a half hour of pure entertainment gold, featuring songs from Not the Cure for Cancer, interviews and songs recorded live from the band’s short set at Lit Lounge last week.
